3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours copper/brown with a big white head. Very pretty. Aroma is a little off. A touch of the requisite nuttiness is present but the aroma is dominated by seemingly pale malts, which doesn't quite add up. Nutty/toasty notes up front in the taste, but the finish is more lager-like. Some citrus appears from the hops. Solid carb. All in all a little messy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Best by 7/17/13. Consumed 4/7/13. Pours a translucent amber with a thin, fast to fade off-white head. Aroma is fruit, vanilla, grass, bread, hint of chocolate, caramel. Taste is sweet, caramel, grass, earthy, fruit, yeast, bread; very subtle dark chocolate finish. Little lacing. Medium carbonation; a bit high. Mouth feel is chewy. Little complexity. The flavor profile is nice but not highly expressive. Good beer. Not full-flavored enough to be a great beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Brownish beer with a slight reddish tinge, the head is fairly strong. The aroma is roasted with some degree of chocolatyness, and the flavour is roasted with a small amount of bitterness and large amounts of fruity maltyness. Overall a reasonable beer, nothing spectacular.
